Insights Court fees: Government announces increases

The Government has published its response to the consultation into increases to selected court and tribunal fees, announcing that 172 court and tribunal fees will be increased by 10%. It is the first increase in fees since September 2021, and the Government has signalled that, in the future, a “more routine approach to updating court and tribunal fees by reference to inflation and HMCTS costs is beneficial as smaller-scale increases will lessen the financial impact on users”.

The response to the consultation can be found here, and the complete list of fees being increased can be found at Annex B.
